. i plan to vote for this bill, h.r. 6156, even though i remain strongly opposed to granting russia permanent normal trade relations or pntr, at this time. i would like to explain the reasons why. those who argued for granting russia pntr, which has until now been prevented by what is known as the jackson-vanik amendment, focus on the supposedly bilateral trade benefits. the issue that concerns me and many members is not trade but human rights. advocates of repeal say that the jackson-vanik amendment is outdated and is purely symbolic and therefore should be disregarded. but in the ira of human rights, madam speaker, symbols can have a very great importance. over the years jackson-vanik has become a sign of the continuing u.s. commitment to human rights in russia and elsewhere. repealing the amendment could very well be interpreted as an indication that our commitment is now weakening. this would be a terrible signal to send at a time when putin is in the process of imposing ever tighter restrictions on all opposition to his regime, especially democratic activists and any others who
permanent normal trade relations to russia. this past august russia joined the world trade organization, giving its members full access to russia's rapidly growing market. reduce tariffs, and ensure transparency when implementing trade measures. however, while foreign competitors are currently benefiting, the u.s. will not receive any of these benefits until congress authorizes the president to grant russia permanent normal trade relations. simply put, american companies, workers, and farmers are being put at a competitive disadvantage. last year my home state of michigan exported $225 million worth of goods to russia. despite many of its best products facing tough competition from foreign competitors. with this agreement in place, farmers and producers in my district will be assured of more predictable market access for the crops and arkansas urel goods, while manufacturers will enjoy reduced tariff rates for michigan-made vehicles and equipment. as the world trade organization member, russia has agreed to comply with the rule of law. though these reforms won't happen overnight, russia
crushing governor romney. some bad news associated with it. it is a poll taken in russia. that's right, all whopping 41 percent of russians want president obama reelected. only 8%, 8% back romney. oh, my goodness. they have cancer that sort of things. those romn supporters may want to kind of watch their backs given what is happening in russia these days. romney will have history on his side heading into next week's election. the republicans have won every single presidential election on november 6th. going back to 1860's when abraham lincoln beat democrat stephendouglas. only five days to get that election in and see if the street continues. i don't see why they don't just call the election based on that historical imperative. new reports tonight that dnc chairman w. wasserman shultz got involved in dated altercation with the florida police officer. he asked her to stop blocking traffic. wasserman shultz was greeting voters outside a polling station in the city of at ventura earlier this week. the policeman asked her to move to the sidewalk, pretty please. she reportedly refused to argue w
now in terms of how will it be taken forward with russia and china? will there be confrontation? the question that's going to be asked and needs to be asked is because strategy is needed is to go to the russians and say basically, now what do you want? the president is there for four more years, no more elections, what is it that you want? deliver what the russians or not? cold war they want or what is -- what consequences of that? from what i understand the foreign minister of russia was meeting with the gulf ministers, the gcc ministers, i, from what my information is he did not give in. they are standing exactly where they were. this is not -- the strategy is needed. it is not a strategy, and the u.s., no matter how much we try to run away from that situation in syria and israel and iran, it's, yeah, light footed or heavy footed, leadership is needed. >> one follow-up question. do you see the current situation, you talked about the instability and opportunity as they say in america, an opportunity to change the channel. is it likely an opportunity for assad to change the chan
ride. they are working on a new two men bobsled to bring it to the games and sochi russia. this has been in the works for about one year, a prototype of already been delivered and the west team thinks it could be a major boost for their medal hopes. the women won in 2002, but the two men gold medal has not been won by the americans since 1936. this is a big deal. they are hoping to win a. they are hoping bmw can help. there are specific rules on how you can build them. but bmw believes there bobsled could be the winner that could help the united states team win the gold which they have not done in the two men and more than 50 years. we are looking forward to this which will be in park city utah and in two years with could see this for the olympic team and russia. back to you. >> thank you. it is 5:27. call outside. the news continues at 5:30. >> still ahead, maryland voters approved gambling in the state. john gonzalez live >> live and in hd. this is "good morning washington." on your side. >> lawmakers expected to speak about what the fbi and cia know about the david petraeus scan
of russia. we have that cold air moving over the relatively warm waters, and that's creating some sea-effect snow in northern japan, actually in fukushima prefecture. some of the higher elevations saw up to 20 centimeters of snow in the past 24 hours. here's rainfall in yamagata prefecture, upwards of about 263 millimeters of rain was reported here into the past several days. now as we go into the next 24 hours into friday, wind is going to start to change direction and bring in fairer conditions just on friday, because you see this area in blue coming in from the west? that's bringing some heavy rain showers all across japan on your saturday going into sunday, so it's going to be a wet and windy one out here, and where this is coming from is central and eastern china. we have this developing low here. that's going to start to pull off towards the east, and with it, bringing those rain showers. actually, there in china around the yun zi river, and upwards to 100 millimeters as well. let's look south into the tropics. we have our tropical depression along the southern portions of vietn
saying in russia about this? they say this is the way we do things over here? >> an investigation is under way. this video was just posted on the internet. they believe it's in connection to a riot that happened two days before at another prison where hundreds of inmates were complaining about their treatment by the employees of the prison. it seems that this man has reached his breaking point and watch what they start doing. they are stuffing a hat in his mouth to get him to quiet down. two prison officials have been fired since this initially happened in march but the other employees are still there. >>> you're looking at a photo of 23-year-old bridgette hughes. bridgette was at the phoenix sky harbor airport on sunday and around 12:30 in the morning she found out that her flight to ep pas el paso, texas, was canceled and she realized in the chaos that she lost the hat she is wearing in that video. you probably think big deal. you lost a hat. this was a big deal to bridgette because this hat belonged to bridgette's mom. bridgette's mom died in 1997 after a battle with breast can
teenage daughter, she said, what's wrong with russia? i said it's not russia, the soviet union. she said once that? that it was a big thing back there in the late '80s and early 90s before it toppled. we were geared up to fight in the most of us had never really considered iraq on yahoo! saddam hussein was. and after that war was over, which when he was a foregone conclusion. the terrorism thing took us all by surprise but we just thought they were gravel rows, never give them too much credit. all the buildings at khobar towers were built by the bin laden construction company. they have the bin laden stands and all the -- how's that for irony? but after that things kind of change. the world trade center bombings and september 11, of course we all know what happened that day. i was actually flying that morning. we had come back from the middle east from another rotation. monday, september 10 was her first day back. and the morning of september 11 i was actually falling, and i've come down very, very early, and somebody said you've got to look at this. i've been everything as i looked at t
arab ya and the united states and russia and the european countries. what happened in lebanon -- if left to themselves, lebanon -- which is another sad story -- they might have been able to compromise and come together as they did on a number of occasion before re '7s and '80s, and work things out somehow. find some sort of system and muddle through this. but as they say in real estate, location is everything. and lebanon being between syria and israel, and of course syria itself being on the border of israel, lebanon, iraq, south of turkey, you're not going to be -- you cannot be the switzerland over the middle east. are going to have outside influences which usually exacerbate the situation and lengthen the time of the civil war. >> and so let's talk a little bit now, shifting the perspective, to the personal connections that you have to the house of assad. i would love for you to give us a good feel for, who is this man who is the president and how did he change over the time that you've known him? seems like there was a definitive time around 2005-2006 that you say he shif
coming in from russia, switzerland and france under the mantle of the palestinian authorities are going to open the grave this coming week. they're going to take samples and shut the grave again on the same day. it's a very emotional day for palestinians because he is this overarching palestinian figure, but also a very, very interesting and almost exciting forensic case as well, victor. >> we know that the investigative committee held a news conference a short time ago. what more are we learning about how they're moving forward? >> reporter: well, they said they're moving forward in a way that, first of all, they pushed back the date for when the grave was going to be opened. they then went through the motions how all of this is going down. they said there's going to be a very ceremonial opening of the grave, then they're going to take the samples and then arafat is going to be laid to rest again with a religious ceremony and a military ceremony as well. that's sort of the process that's going to go on. what's going to happen is these three forensic teams, the russian, french and swiss
, and he was the richest man in russia. kind of a bad way. and this is what he said to me about oligarchs and everybody else. if the man is not an oligarchic something is not right with him. everyone had the same starting conditions, everyone could have done it. and he really meant it. very heartfelt and not criticizing himself, he lost $100 million, he had stupidly entrusted a non oligarch. and this non oligarchic by definition not a smart guy, a few hundred million dollars. there is a little bit of that thinking a lot of these guys and it is interesting because very strong parallels, the parallel with the industrial revolution. there's a line from andrew carnegie which is very similar soak carnegie said the talent for organization is rare among men, approved by the fact that it is reward for its possessor. if a man is not an oligarch something is wrong with him. and services can be obtained as partner, the man whose service can be obtained as a partner for the first consideration such as render the question of his capital that we are considering. such men soon create capital and in the
, through japan, through china and also russia. but i do think ultimately the economy is faltering internally because of the government is able to buy as you reported and broke the story through reuters a couple weeks ago here they were getting one to $3 billion of gold into iran helping them bolster their cash. but on the other hand, goods they're buying are still not keeping up. they have 30% reduction in oil imports or exports rather. they're really suffering on things bringing inand out of the count. meliss how are they doing that? >> they're doing it through, number one, bringing in bullion from turkey and dubai. that brings in cash they need without having to deal in rials. india, japan and china purchasing 50%. their oil shipped through iranian ships orer flagships that e masking the fact that that oil is going to those countries. turkey has the pass through the sanctions of 180 delays they're still dealing with ir. russia, some defense systems they were using in the defense drills this past week were russian made, th s-200 defense system. >> this situation is not getting an
, the house had one bill on the agenda, the bill that would normalize u.s. trade relations with russia and that passed by a vote of 365-43. the senate has yet to take up their version of the measure. a capitol hill reporter fills in the details. >> sports of this bill normalizing trade relations with russia are saying it's long overdue and good for the nation's economy. why is that? >> well, it >> it will hopefully double exports to russia from the united states. it will go across a broad group of products. manufacturers are backing it strongly. it could be airplanes and parts associated with that. locomotives, chemicals, food, clothing. it seems russia likes u.s. products. we expect there to be good and quick growth. >> how is lining up to oppose it? >> it has wide support on capitol hill. even the administration backs the bill. it does seem to have broad support across washington and the country for businesses that want to export products to russia. >> with all of the legislation and that remains to be done in the lame-duck session, this is the first one. what are the prospects in th
the world war iii. host: let's go to russia. before the elections, president obama was heard on a hot microphone telling dmitry medvedev that he would have more flexibility after the election. what was he referring to? host: -- guest: romney is sent one of his sons to speak to one of the aids of vladimir putin. policy someone gets frozen during an election. russian policy, in particular. president who was prime minister during that time and now is president again. the relationship with russia has been somewhat fractious lately. secretary of state hillary clinton accused the russians of ridding their election. there were concerned for these popular protests in moscow where there was great oppression by the government and who lashed out at the united states as well. -- and putin lashed out. one of the earlier policies was for a russian reset, and attempted to take a relationship that was good at one. that had turned very fractious and taken from a basic transactional relationship, just dealing with things as they came out, to building a new, strategic relationship in russia. that has so
. the question was about to russia's role in asia pacific. russia was this year's host of apac. it will participate at the east asia summit. it is an important player in the asia-pacific region. both economically and diplomatically. it will continue to be so. >> regarding the president's trip to burma. human-rights leaders expressed concerns that this visit was too fast, too generous. their main concern here is that the administration is far leveraging the opportunity of the first presidential visit which can only be once to press for new reforms. has the administration been able to leverage this a budget -- visit for tangible foreign measures? would you like to be secretary of state? thank you. [laughter] >> thank you for those questions, josh. with respect to burma -- there have been remarkable progress. since we saw the president called them cookers of progress in the summer of 2011. you have seen the release of prisoners, you have seen the easing of the media restrictions, you have seen the infighting into the political process of the parties. we have consulted with stakeho
where it was just the united states and russia, and now i think we have to drain the swamp. there is no other way, a sane way ahead >> you worry about rogue states, of course. you worry about terrorists. you worry about accidents. have you a movie "countdown to zero" which makes this argument in a really compelling way, and it telling the story of one russian man who actually tried to sell nuclear material to al qaeda. >> yes. >> the vignette of that was rather a low level worker in a uranium plant in the former soviet union, and he knew that by taking -- he could secrete very small amounts of highly enriched uranium, and he had a buyer that was a representative al qaeda, and the whole reason that he wanted to sell that was so that he could get a refrigerator. i mean, for him that was what -- that's all it was to him, a means to, you know, make his personal life a little better. >> queen noor, when you look at this and say you want the u.s. to lead the way and russia to lead the way in reducing nuclear arsenals. the counterargument is wait a minute all the bad actors in the
's wrong with russia? i said it's not russia, it's the soviet union. she said was that? but it's a big thing back in the late 80s and early 90s before it toppled. we were geared up to fight them and most of us have never considered iraq or knew who saddam hussein was. after that war was over, which when it was a foregone conclusion, the terrorists and they took us all by surprise. we thought they were rabble-rousers. never given too much credit. interestingly enough, all the buildings were built by the bin laden construction company and had the bin laden stamps and buildings. how's that for irony? after that, things kind of change. the world trade in their bombing and september 11, we all know what happened that day. i was flying up winning. we came back from the middle east from another rotation in the monday, september 10 was their first day back. the morning of september 11th is actually flying in it come down very, very early. somebody said hey come you got to look at this. remember the key not the first tower building, what morons could hit tower of that size on a clear day? i tho

a couple of hours. what the scientists from russia, france and switzerland and also palestinian doctors did was they opened the grave, they took samples. they didn't even have to extract the body to do that. then they resealed it again. those samples are now going to be independently verified and analyzed in labs in russia, switzerland as well as france. what the palsiestinians tell uss results will be available in three months' time. if poison is found in arafat's remains it would probably cause an uproar in the palestinian territory. for a long time they have been saying israel poisoned the palestinian leader. israel is not even willing to comment on that. even if no poison is found it's hardly going to lay to rest the rumors that arafat was killed. erin? >>> our fifth story "outfront" paula broadwell's next chapter. she has become a tabloid sensation, the woman whose relationship brought down general david petraeus, ending the cia director's storied career. she even made the cover of this week's "people" magazine. yes, it's a great picture. but not a picture she ever wanted to see. so ho

multinational meetings of countries who oppose the scheme, including meetings that took place in russia and the united states. the bill before us directs the secretary of transportation to prohibit u.s. aircraft operators from participating in this illegal scheme. the bill also directs appropriate u.s. government officials to negotiate a worldwide approach to address aircraft emissions and to take appropriate actions to hold u.s. civil operators harmless from the e.u. emissions trading scheme. the e.u. needs to slow down, carefully weigh its decision to include international civil aviation in its emissions trading scheme. a better approach would be to work with the international civil aviation community through the u.n. international civil aviation organization to establish consensus-driven initiatives to reduce airline emissions. i'm pleased to see movement on the part of the e.u. to work with international community at i.k.o. to seek a global approach to civil aviation emissions. while the post ponement for a year is a positive sign, it's not enough to ensure u.s. operators won't be n
